Rock Over Japan

So, new project. Since we’re a dead scan group, seems appropriate that we should focus on dead manga, ne? I believe we have hit upon a foolproof strategy here : No Raws, No Serialization, and No Furigana. This pretty much drops the hijack probability to zero. All of these properties are present in Oedo!! Unpluged by Shinji Inamitsu. This was a 2009-2010 vintage effort that just stopped after 20 chapters; while never officially ended per se,  since Inamitsu moved from Shogakukan to Akita Shoten it’s fairly unlikely to see a continuation. However, the series was charming while it lasted, and as long-term readers here may recall, I’m a sucker for kimonos…

[Translator: slyborg  Typesetter: slyborg Proof: shane]

Story here is pretty straightforward – Japanese high school Rocker Grrl goes back in time and has adventures in Old Tokyo. Later on there is a Fightan Tensai Loli, which satisfies the other required criteria for manga I scanlate, which is of course fightan lolis.

This being Suimasen … Translation Notes!
– The Tenpō Era this takes place in refers to the Imperial nengō or era which ran from 1830-1844. The 5th year of Tenpō would make the year 1835 or 173 years before the 2008 present of the manga. The shōgun at this time was Tokugawa Ienari, “…who was known as a degenerate who kept a harem of 900 women and fathered over 75 children.” Just like my Asian burlesques!
– On p. 29, the “Danjuurou” referred to would have been Ichikawa Danjūrō VIII, the 8th to adopt that name in the famous Ichikawa family of kabuki actors. The last of the lineage to carry the name was the 12th, who died in 2013, but his son is also a kabuki actor of note.

Also would like to welcome our new staffer shane, who was drafted into proofing duty here. His main responsibility is Juuden-chan, of which we should have a new chapter out shortly, but please continue to wait warmly.
